10.09.21 Happy Friday everyone. It has been lovely to have the children back in the classroom. As expected there have been some tears but the children have been very brave. Is a big change Mum's and Dads as well as the children and it wont be long before the children are running in on their own. I should have given you all some forms and information sheets this week. If we could have them back as soon as possible along with the family photo that would be great. Our Topic is Me and My Community and we will be have lots of activities around family times.
I will update this page each week and photographs showing what the children have been doing will go up on the fence outside the class room.
If you have any concerns then please come and see me
have a good weekend
17th September Happy Friday everyone. Another lovely week. We have been making the most of the Autumn weather and spending alot of time in the garden. The children have been bug hunting, great at this time of year lots of spiders slugs and daddy longlegs to find. The mud kitchen has been very busy with our own version of master chef and mark making with the chalks have been the popular activities this week. The children are all becoming familiar with the routines of the session. We are having storytime and songs each day and snack time is going well. Thank you to those of you who have sent the family photo the children love talking about them please keep them coming in. Also its very important for me to have your funding forms back please as there is a deadline to get them in the borough hall
Have a lovely weekend
If you use a funding code for your child's place please keep a copy of it as you will need it each term to put put onto your funding form. We do not keep copy's of the codes
Happy Friday 24th September The children have been making lovely owl pictures this week to go with our topic story Owl babies. There has been lots of printing sticking and mess!! but lovely results we hope you like them. They have been learning a rhyme about a wide eyed owl they maybe able to tell you about it if you ask them.
Happy Friday October 1st. Well the Autumn weather seems to be with us now so its back into coats. We will be encouraging the children to put their own coats on so it would be great if the could practice at home as well. Please can you make sure your child's name is in their coat as they rarely know which one is theirs when we ask them. The children have all done some lovely paintings this week which we have put up in the classroom and have been enjoying collage activities. They are all getting really good at joining in with our topic songs and we are starting to work on a familiar songs for a celebrations later this term. If you would like your child to wear wellies outside please name a pair and we will put them on the rack by the garden door. We will be doing Autumn walks later this term and wellies will be a must at that point
Happy Friday October 8th Hi everyone another busy week in Daisy Class. This week we have been looking at faces, all different faces as well as our own. The children have then had access to face templates mirrors play dough buttons and beads and made a face naming the different features. We have seen some lovely drawings as well. Below are a couple of photos of the results.
Next week I will be sending out some information about story sacks that we will be lending out to you starting 18th October.
Happy Friday. Moving on with our Me and My Community topic we are going to look at houses and where we live. Maybe when you are walking to school or out and about at the weekend you can see how many different sorts of houses you can find. We will be building with a variety of blocks making pictures using different shapes and looking at picture cards with all sorts of houses on them. A great story for this is The Three Little Pigs have fun.
Happy Friday 22nd October. I can't believe its half term already. Another busy week in Daisy Class, this week the children have really enjoyed the musical instruments and I think we have the makings of a class band!. Next week its half term and the children come back on Tuesday 2nd November. We will be changing our topic to Exploring Autumn. One of the activities I have planned is an Autumn walk around the school field at the back of preschool. The grass is long and wet so if you could send in a pair of named wellies that would great. I hope you all have a great half term and the weather is kind.
Happy Friday- 05.11.21 It is great to have all the children back to school and a full class again after lots of children being poorly last term. The children have been looking at Diwali celebrations this week. Divas have been made stories read and some wonderful dance with scarves has been seen in the class room. We have introduced our new topic story Squirrels Busy Day which is offering the children some new language. Lots of the children think the badger is a panda and the fox a wolf which makes me smile every time I read it to them. Next week we are looking at Autumn leaves and will be going on a walk around the field to collect leaves. Wellies will be a must so the children can come to school in them or bring them in a bag to change into. Please make sure they are named.
Happy Monday. 22.11. 21 The children have been enjoying the Autumn activities we have been doing over the last few weeks. They are all becoming very familiar with the characters in our topic story Squirrels Busy Day. It has introduced some new vocabulary to them and the idea that it is kind to help our friends when they are having a tough day. The Autumn activity challenge this week was to sew round and Autumn leaf. It is a skill we will continue to practice but they all tried really hard.
